REVIEW: Boyhood – Me, and You, and Everyone We Know and Love

by Anna Tatarska

This tweet from Mark Cousins recently popped up on my Facebook feed: “I almost never re-watch films, but I want to see Richard Linklater’s Boyhood every year of my life.” The Scottish director was not the first in the movie’s unanimous choir of praisers; he simply vocalized what I believe all who have seen it think. The product of Richard Linklater’s 12-year cinematic experiment is not only an unheard-of and daring exercise executed with striking consequence, a firm emotional pattern, and structural consistency — it’s a one-of-a-kind experience.

Grade: A
